St Gregory & St Patrick's


Nursery learning is all about hands on, fun and practical activities. Please try to make learning at home as enjoyable as possible. We have gathered lots of ideas for practical games you can play at home to support maths and reading. 

This page is to support learning at home if your child is absent from school for a long period of time. Planning will be updated weekly and will be linked to the focus text we are using in Nursery.  

If you are unsure of anything at all please get in touch via Learning Book.
